Hello doctor,

I am 22 years old with a weight of 96 kg. I have been participating in sex from the last year. It is happening frequently and when I am alone, I am now masturbating almost daily even for once and I finish so early. I cannot last long. Is that anything to do with masturbating or frequent participation in sex?

The excess masturbation has shown relation to premature ejaculation. So it is advisable to restrict masturbation frequency two to three times a week. It is also important to learn when to slow down stimulation by distraction technique to prevent early ejaculation. Master and Johnson's techniques are also beneficial. Topical Lignocaine jelly can be applied after erection to prevent early ejaculation. A pelvic exercise called Kegel exercise is also beneficial. However, if you do not have an improvement in early ejaculation with all these methods then consult nearby sexologist or psychiatrist for detailed evaluation.
